Living Room Rehab: Paint The Change In Your Home
The living room is an area of the home where the family can gather to talk about the events of the day. It’s a place where you can relax after work and where you can celebrate the joyous occasions in life, such as a holiday or the arrival of a new baby. The living room is somewhat of a catch-all room for all the emotions and occasions in life. It should be a space that is warm an inviting. Aside from changing the decorations on the side tables or on the coffee table throughout the year, you can work on a living room rehab project that will change everything about the room from top to bottom.
When it comes to painting your living room, the paint pros at Paint It suggest you celebrate National Painting Week by beginning your living room rehab project. This is a time when you can cut loose and celebrate the new colors that the spring season has to offer while focusing on the personality of the living room. The holiday week takes place from May 22 to May 31, 2017. During the week, you can find your favorite color that will showcase the life and the joy that the family has in the home at Sherwin Williams. Lighter colors, such as beige or ivory, work well in a living room. They allow the room to appear larger than it is compared to darker colors tending to make the room seem enclosed. Lighter colors also offer a way for you to add any decorations on the wall and almost any color on the furniture if you want to re-upholster the couch or the chairs.
Rehab Color Selection
One of the challenges when you’re working on a living room rehab project is that you might not know how to select the colors to use in the room. The first thing a Paint It consultant will tell customers you should do when you begin your living room painting is to look at the largest pattern that is in the space. Highlight that pattern or design with a color on the wall. An example would be a nautical theme. You might have blues, hues of gold and white for the decorations and furnishings. Capture the primary color from the largest pieces in the paint on the wall. Use a color wheel to see which colors complement each other the best. When you begin decorating and re-upholstering furniture, consider contrasting cool and warm shades as they will create a balance in the living room, making it easier to finish the project.
